step on the two shock towers while on a flat surface and tighten the top deck down: or try out a BMI kit >plug<

take your tires off make sure there is nothing on the bottom of your chassis

place your car on a flat surface like a tweak board or granite or glass

loosen all your top deck screws and your car SHOULD go flat

if it doesnt make sure and loosen all the screws in your car slowly going thru and tightening everyhitn gback down while leaving your top deck loose

your car should go flat

once its flat softly push down on the shock towers to hold the car flat and diagonally tighten your top deck screws

when all said and done your top deck should be tithgt and when you put your car on a flat surface it should be flat

I'm sure you have this, but just checking, you dont have the bolt in the motor mount w/out the 2mm spacer, do you?

Just if you didnt have that spacer, it could cause some really weird stuff... the top deck isnt on upside down, is it?

Make sure your bulkheads are square to each other. If your belts don't run true,then something is wrong with the placement with the bulkheads.
Takes some playing with but you will get it.

On the top deck... the insert for the steering post bearing is offset to the right. If you have it to the left (deck upside down) by mistake it will induce a tweak into the car.

My biggest tweak problem seemed to be from the front shock tower. Loosen everything as mentioned above AND the shock towers. Proceed as above and tighten the shock towers last - while still pushing down on them. Worked for me. Good luck!
